Good morning Habs fans.
After almost squandering another lead at home - the Habs led 3-1 before the Islanders tied it - Montreal rallied back to beat the Islanders 5-3 last night. Petteri Nokelainen emerged as an unlikely hero, scoring the winning goal for the Canadiens.
It was the first time in over a month that the Canadiens won back-to-back games. The victory also extends...
Don't look now but your Montreal Canadiens are on a winning streak, albeit a modest two-game streak. But considering it's been a month since they last won back-to-back games (November 10 and 12th) they'll take it.
It was mostly a boring game in which the Habs helped the hapless Isles look a lot better than they are.
Despite being dominated for the majority of the...
Taking liberty with the headlines here. Game day Isles vs. Habs in Montreal.
Last night Brad and I had Sean Campbell from a Montreal radio station on our NHLweekly show on Sportstalknetwork.com so I got to research Montreal a little prior to his call in.
Like the Islanders, Montreal is just on that bubble. The Habs have played three more games than the Isles and have 31...
There was a surprising trade in the NHL on Dec. 9 when the Carolina Hurricanes sent defenseman Tomas Kaberle over to the Montreal Canadiens in return for fellow Czech Republic defenseman Jaroslav Spacek. The deal came as a bit of a shock to many fans and Kaberle himself since he was signed by Carolina as a free agent just a few months ago. Kaberle was in the first year of a three...

Last night's game in Montreal was one the New York Islanders will wish to soon forget. The Canadiens were able to grab the two points by defeating the Isles 5-3 at the Bell Centre. Don't let the (relatively) close score fool you: This was a mismatch from the opening face-off, and though the Isles would eventually wake up, it'd just be too little...
The Canadiens won their second in a row, blowing a 3-1 lead but eventually beating the Islanders 5-3. Isles’ goaltender Al Montoya wasn’t particularly sharp on this night, and the difference for the Canadiens was largely the fourth line, but a wins a win and Montreal will take it.
Quick highlights: Tomas Kaberle notched an assist, he now has three in two games as a Hab, and...
BROSSARD – In today’s notebook: Eller looks for more finish, Gill sets a bad example and Subban gets patriotic.
Moves like Eller: It didn’t wind up on the scoresheet, but Lars Eller’s nifty dangle to split the Islanders de...
On Friday, it was announced that the Montreal Canadiens acquired defenseman Tomas Kaberle from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for defenseman Jaroslav Spacek in a deal where two struggling teams swapped two struggling defenseman. While attempting to devise the most […]
Since I lost found time to blog, the Canes got back to their losing ways on Saturday and more significantly, they shed a big salary that just was not working in Tomas Kaberle.
On the Kaberle thing...Here is a painful blast from the past for you - Sandis Ozolinsh. High-end puck-moving defensemen have been few and far between for the Canes. Most would put Joni Pitkanen in this...
Petteri Nokelainen scored with 6:15 remaining as the Montreal Canadiens recovered after giving up a two-goal lead in the third period, beating the New York Islanders 5-3 Tuesday night. Nokelainen drove a slap shot past Al Montoya from the right point for the tiebreaking goal moments after Montreal squandered a 3-1 advantage.
